• Friendly reminder that "rock paper scissors" exist in
the Avatar universe
It's made after the avatar cycle
Not which element actually beats each other in reality, cause that
would depend on the bender. In the game it's decided who wins
after the order of the avatar cycl
Water beats eart!
Earth beats fire
Fire beats
beats y
Who wins between water and fire? No one, they are opposite
elements. They can't beat each other.
Who wins between
air
and earth? No one, they are opposite
elements. They can't beat each other.
The hand gestures are either a move in the bending style or a
representation of the element itself;
Water A hand d waves
(suggestion) no one really knows
the hand gesture for water

    • For those who seem to be questioning how "THAT DOESN'T MAKE SENSE, WATER SHOULD BE FIRE" it literally states why that is, it relates to the cycle of which nation the avatar is born in; air, water, earth, fire then air again

    • I hate that usual element relationships is water beats fire, I feel logically they should beat each other. Water puts out fire but fire turns water to steam water only puts out fire on its own when there’s lots more water then fire, and if one element is vastly higher then the other of course it win
